Certified LeSS Practitioner | Remi Kok

I wanted to thank you again for an inspiring course. It was three long days with a lot of good practices. Loved the discussions and the contribution from Cesario’s experience. I learned that scaling up Scrum is made possible through the LeSS (Huge) Framework without losing the Scrum principles. For me there where a few great eye-openers. Going to use it that's for sure.

Thanks Cesario for a great time.

Professional Scrum Master Training | Jean Kuppers

Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group. I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.
Jean Kuppers, Professional Scrum Master Training


PSPO Training | Marc Maessen

Hele leerzame en inspiratievolle training die aangepast kan worden naar de wens van de cursisten en zo toegespitst wordt op hetgeen het meest gevraagd benodigd is. Cesario is een trainer met een zeer grote schat aan ervaring en kennis en kan daardoor snel en adequaat de situatie anticiperen, de training bijsturen en de theorie aanvullen met real life voorbeelden die hij zelf heeft ondervonden. Zeer waardevolle hulpmiddelen en aftercare toegereikt gekregen en dus al met al uitermate tevreden. Absolute aanrader !!!
